The Unworthy Thor [The Book Depository] [Waterstones] lets us see a glimpse of what might happen with Thor and Thanos during Avengers Infinity War. We get to see Thor finally getting his grip on his new hammer. It’s not like Mjolnir at all. It’s very likely that we’ll see this hammer rocking the screen. We’ll discover that soon enough.

In this last issue, we can see how Thor ends the depressing cicle he was in, and we can also glimpse why Thanos is in his quest of destroying the Universe. Thor cut his hair in an attempt to make a difference. He decided to fight, but knowing that he is Unworthy and it doesn’t matter as long as he wants to do good.

He is Thor, no matter what. In his lowest, drunk and spent, he’s still Thor. Without Mjolnir, without a home, without anything, and he’s still the same person. He can be depressed or not, and he’s still Thor. Once he comes to terms on being Thor despite having or not a hammer, he’s able to grasp the old Mjolnir. Because the secret of being worthy is knowing that no one is. But his foes aren’t ready to let him have his way. Both the Collector and Thanos’ team.

Both try their best to take the Hammer, and both fail. Thanos’ team goes back emptyhanded. And the Collector looses everything. Not only Thor help escape all the inmates, aka the Collector’s weird collection, he also stole back Asgard. He managed to recover Asgard and put it where it was meant to be. However, neither the Collector nor Thanos are happy at all. In fact, Thanos is thinking about collecting a revenge from his informant.

The informant happens to be Hela, who promises to him Death. Now, this seems quite sick, but it explains many things going on in the Marvel Universe. Thanos is in love, and he cannot think about any better present that provides Death with a high number of souls. If he manages to give her a small empire, then she’ll be all his. Love can be deadly, more so when the one in love is Thanos.

So, Thor leaves the old Mjolnir in Asgard until he hears the voice. Until then, he’ll keep fighting as just Thor. He isn’t worthy, but no God is. In his imperfection he has come to grips to accept his self completely, the good and bad parts. And that’s what makes this comic book excellent. We start with a depressed Thor, and we end up with an enlightened one. We couldn’t ask for more.

Now, I wonder if we’ll see some of the scenes of The Unworthy Thor [The Book Depository] [Waterstones] in Avengers Infinity War, or if the weapon that Thor is creating for himself will resemble this old Mjolnir. What do you think?
